This is also wrong in that it calls character references "entities", and,
as noted, fails to be a reliable reference when used with Netscape 4.x.

All this reference does is demonstrates how your browser renders those
character references when it encounters them. It is heavily dependent on
the browser, the fonts you have installed, and the mechanisms your browser
uses for selecting fonts. IE, for example, will override your font setting
if a glyph for the character is not available in the desired font but is
available in another.

Please, folks, if you are trying to find out what a character reference
*should* and *does* mean, just refer to the specs that define this stuff
without ambiguity -- XML, HTML and Unicode. Testing "&#12345;" in your
browser is not the way to go about it.
